Wolves handed Bruno Jordao injury boost

Wolverhampton Wanderers have been handed a major boost regarding the recovery of Bruno Jordao.

What’s the latest?

In recent comments made on the E&S Wolves Podcast (via This Is Futbol), the Express & Star journalist, Liam Keen, revealed that the central midfielder, who has not featured competitively for Wolves since July 2020, has finally returned to the grass at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground, as the 23-year-old continues with his recovery from a long-term knee injury.

Speaking about the current condition of Jordao, Keen said: “Jordao is back on the grass now, which is good. I don’t think he’s quite in team training… but that’s one I’ll double-check. He’s definitely on the grass, so he’s getting closer.”

Fans will be buzzing

Having made a grand total of just four first-team appearances since his £8.01m move to Molineux back in the summer of 2019, the news that Jordao is finally nearing a return from injury is sure to have left Wolves fans buzzing.

Indeed, the former Portugal U21 international has made more appearances for the club’s U23 side than he has for the first team thus far in his spell with the Premier League club, and, considering how short Bruno Lage currently is in the middle of the park, the 23-year-old’s return cannot come quick enough.

At present, the 45-year-old Wolves boss is limited to the options of Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho in central midfield. However, with none of these three players being particularly attack-minded, the Portuguese manager has suffered from a significant lack of creativity in the heart of his side – with the trio having scored one goal and registered one assist between them in the league so far this season.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

And, while Jordao is not exactly an out and out attacking midfielder, the £41k-per-week man’s return of one goal over his four first-team appearances for Wolves nevertheless means his return will be a major boost for Lage, especially with the hectic Christmas period soon upon us.
